Wonderful Wednesday: BooBoo Lu

25 Aug

Louise had several sebaceous adenomas removed yesterday. I would have left them alone but the big ones had started bleeding and it was scary. I am not sure they bothered her, but when your dog comes to you with blood all over her head and your carpet, you kind of freak out (yes, I did).

A sebaceous adenoma is a benign tumor of the oil gland cells of the skin. Some people call them ‘dog warts’ but they aren’t viral like a wart is, though they do grow along a root system.

Lulu, aka BooBoo head, started to have them years ago. I had one removed last time she had a dental because she was asleep. She only had one then. Now she has them on her head, her face, her ears, and down her whole back. The one on her head, in the picture above, was very big and oozy (yuck).

The vet removed some surgically and others with a laser. Now she has stitches in multiple locations that will have to come out in 12 to 14 days. You know Lulu Bell, she is the sweetest girl and never complains. She was so happy to be home and have dinner (after significant sniffing from Sofie, Charles, and even Nine). Now to make sure she doesn’t scratch at them. I just love this dog and, like all my Zoo, I want her to be comfortable and happy for many years to come.

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    OMGoodness, Lu. What a brave girl you are. We are happy you are fixed up and sewed back together. If you need to wear the Cone of Courage, we will understand. Try not to scratch your stitches – even when they start healing and get itchy.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake
